_cell.reciprocal_angle_gamma

Name:
'_cell.reciprocal_angle_gamma'

Definition:

   The angle (recip-gamma) defining the reciprocal cell in degrees.
   (recip-alpha), (recip-alpha) and (recip-alpha) related to the
   angles in the real cell by:

   cos(recip-alpha)
       = [cos(beta)*cos(gamma) - cos(alpha)]/[sin(beta)*sin(gamma)]

   cos(recip-beta)
       = [cos(gamma)*cos(alpha) - cos(beta)]/[sin(gamma)*sin(alpha)]

   cos(recip-gamma)
       = [cos(alpha)*cos(beta) - cos(gamma)]/[sin(alpha)*sin(beta)]
